Kenny Loggins Announces Farewell Tour: ‘This Is It’
The tour will begin on March 10 in Sarasota, Florida, and will continue in destinations like New Orleans, Chicago, and Los Angeles in the next few months before wrapping up on October 27 in Inglewood, California.
Announcing the tour, Loggins said, “It’s been an amazing journey since starting with Jimmy Messina in 1971, and I’m fortunate to have had such a long touring career. I don’t see this as the end of my professional career, but certainly a halt to the grind of major touring.”
The acclaimed guitarist revealed that there was no specific reason behind his retirement from touring apart from wanting to spend some time at home. “After spending a lifetime on the road, I want to have more time at home,” he added.
Loggins further opened up about what to expect from the tour and said, “I will trace my music career with a brand-new, career-spanning stage show,” adding, “I’ll be playing songs that I feel sum up the emotional story of my music. This will include 90 percent of the hits and 10 or so percent of the deeper cuts.”
